Eagles 59, Redskins 28

LANDOVER, Md. — Michael Vick, not Donovan McNabb, played like a $78 million quarterback Monday night, accounting for six touchdowns.

And his Eagles marched down the field in one big chunk after another, doing it enough times to put new entries in the various record books.

On a day the Redskins hoped to celebrate McNabb's new contract and set aside the distractions from his benching two weeks earlier (see 5C), Vick and the Eagles thoroughly embarrassed their NFC East rival 59-28.

The Eagles scored on an 88-yard pass from Vick to DeSean Jackson on the first play from scrimmage, led 35-0 after the first play of the second quarter and barely let up.

Vick completed his first 10 passes and finished 20-for-28 for 333 yards with four touchdowns. He also ran eight times for 80 yards and two scores, moving past Steve Young and into second place in NFL history for yards rushing by a quarterback.

The Eagles set team records for total yards in a game (592), points in a half (45) and had the biggest lead after the first quarter (28-0) for any road team since at least 1950.

McNabb was 17-for-31 for 295 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions, nearly all of the yards coming after the Redskins had dug a five-touchdown hole. Dimitri Patterson intercepted McNabb twice, returning one 40 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.

    WESLEY CHAPEL — Wiregrass Ranch High coach Michelle Davis is realistic about her volleyball team this season. They will scrap for every point. They will never give up. They will encourage each other no matter what.
